in Faith

Our God fights for us. As we read in Exodus, just before Moses and the Israelites crossed the Red Sea they were in a terrible place—hemmed in by the Red Sea on the front, mountains on each side, and a massive Egyptian army behind that was intent on taking them captive. In the middle of all that confusion, Moses spoke to the frightened people and said, “Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will work for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall never see again. The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be silent” (Exodus 14:13-14, ESV).

Each one of us is facing struggles: with sin, with discouragement, with fear and lack; but God is the one who will win our battles. All he wants us to do is listen to him and trust that he will take care of us as we follow him.

The Israelites went on to cross the Red Sea on dry ground as the LORD made a way through what seemed impossible. God will do the same for you. Only trust him. Rest in his love. Obey him. He will be your Savior in whatever difficult circumstance you face.
